The Kardashians Move into Smyth Tribeca as Does the Toro Bar

Whenever there's another Kardashian TV show spin-off, you can be assured that another hotel will get caught in the Kardashian girls web of drama. This time it's the Smyth Hotel in TriBeCa.

Kourtney and her baby daddy will shack up here while Kourt and sister Kim will launch their Dash boutique somewhere in the city. (Khloe will presumably be orking on making a baby with hubby Lamar Odom back in LA.) NY Post reports:

They'll be using a penthouse at the Smyth Hotel for three months while they expand the family business and find Kim a man. A source said Scott Disick and baby Mason will live in the penthouse with Kourtney for the shoot, with the intention of relocating the family to New York permanently.

There's no word on when the family will move in (it could be happening right now!Toro Bar will be such a good idea, although we're personally excited about the space.

Smyth has long-needed a more exciting night life scene. Things drastically improved with the opening of Plein Sud but Toro (from Plein Sud's restauranteur, Frederick Lesort) will be a proper lounge for guests to socialize in before and after dinner. Cocktails are priced around $12-$16 and will be influenced by Southern France so expect infused concoctions with fennel, lavender and orange zest and fruits such as figs, melons and blood orange.

The lounge will also pay homage to the town of Arles in the Camargue region of Southern France which shares the Spanish tradition of bull fighting, hence the name but also the black leather and red fabrics and the authentic matadors' capes draped along the rear wall.

Toro will be open Monday-Friday from 5pm to 2am and on Saturday from 8pm to 2am. It will be closed on Sundays. Kardashian spottings not guaranteed.

I walk by the Smyth almost every day on my way to and from work and today there was a black SUV with a sign in the window saying (illegible name of company) "welcomes Khloe" I certainly don't follow the Kardashians and all and I so I didn't realize who it was they were welcoming, but I got that feeling it was someone I should know--and sure enough...here it is
